It looks like this is going to take an even darker twist than last year!
The first short clips have been released for the second season of the best show you’re not watching, SundanceTV’s “Rectify,” and they already pack an emotional punch.
As Daniel (Aden Young) lies in a coma after being beat nearly to death in the season 1 finale by the brother of the girl he was convicted of murdering, his family try to deal with the fallout around him. Specifically, step-brother Ted (Clayne Crawford) confronts his wife Tawney (Adelaide Clemons) about the growing bond she began forming with Daniel last season. Was it all just about religious redemption or did she have other feelings for him? Meanwhile, in a scene that’s already breaking our hearts, Daniel talks to a joyful Kerwin (Johnny Ray Gill) in an obvious fantasy sequence set in the afterlife. Kerwin, of course, was led off to be executed last season.
As this show’s signature line says, “it’s the beauty that hurts you most.” “Rectify” returns for season 2 on June 19th. Bring on the pain.
